    so, does this work with .irx files? if so, done in the same method? All the 100+ PS2 games seems not to have a .elf file in them. i cant' find it on any of them at least.

    There are elf files on various demo discs containing multiple games. But I still haven't got this method to work yet.

    I've been trying demo disks with this method aswell as the PS2 games that I have left don't have any.elf files in them [​IMG] I still haven't got this method to work yet though which is kinda annoying.

    I've wasted many DVDs over the last couple of days using this method but I'm determined to get it working.

    cog swap is old more compatible but also more complicated, ESR needs no swapping but iso's must be patched to play them and it's slightly less compatible but i recommend it over cog swap because you don't need a original disc to boot the game.

    I mainly want this so I can get FMCB installed on my Japanese PS2. For some reason when I try to install a multi-boot version on my NTSC-U console, I always get an error near the end and could never get Multi-Boot version of FMCB installed...so basically I need another memory card for my JAP console and in order to do that, I need to boot up uLoader.


    If someone knows why I might be having trouble installing multi-boot version of FMCB and have 1 to 1 files that you used (from flash drive), i woudl appriciate it.

    Multi Boot is for different versions of the console (i.e Slim and Chubby). You can't cross regions with a FMCB MC so if you use a US console for the install then that MC will only work on US consoles and not JAP or PAL PS2's.

    this method works done it today with 007 Agent Under Fire just stripped my old fat ps2 down and did a manual swap with a disk followed the tutorial in the link works a charm just swapping the disks is a bit of a hassle but only have to do it once

    Just got my 007 disc from goozex today and gave this a try.Worked on the first try i followed the guide to a T and it worked perfectly.My memory card didn't have enough free space to install it but after deleting everything i didn't need anymore i know have the noobie package installed to the memory card.Tested ESR with a backup of sonic mega collection and it works great.

    It to me longer to get the level 2 in the game then anything.I played through it once and got to level 2 then quit the game to restart the ps2 so i could do the swap and what do you know it didnt save my game at all so i had to do it all over again and the tape i put on the inside of the ps2 to hold down the sensor came off after this as well so i had to take the whole thing apart to put some better tape on it.

    If it wasn't for that and the game not saving the first time i would have saved a lot of time.

    Call me crazy and I know there's the "you can do it" factor, but if you're going to load free mcboot why not just throw in a Swap Magic elf?
